Thanks for your answer. But this couldn't solve my problem.
When I run swishspider perl script, it works, I get files
*.links, *.response, *.contents and header == "text/html".

That's strange, perl helper script is OK, bu running swish-e

    -S http
    -f /home/web/day.swe
    -c /home/web/search/pp.cfg

I'll get the file day.swe but it has no keywords, only ordinary
structure of .swe file (lots of numbers and stuff).

There must be something I'm missing. But what :(
It seems that swish-e misbehaves (?) When I remember, I compiled
the swish-e executable on another system than I currently run it.
Could it be that all functions (searching, indexing in FS mode) are
working but HTTP indexing is not ? I can check the exact Linux
version numbers on both systems.
